Esio Trot

I finally managed to watch Esio Trot starring Dustin Hoffman and Dame Judi Dench last night. I didn’t really have very high expectations for the movie but it turned out to be quite a pleasant surprise. The movie was light hearted, fun and true to the spirit of Roald Dahl. And because it’s a kids movie with some very adult actors, they threw in some slightly mature jokes that did not detract from the movie at all. It was very cute. And it was nice to see that twinkle in Dustin Hoffmans eyes and so much fun to see Dame Judi Dench flitter around with so much lightness. I think people have gotten used to seeing her in such serious roles that they forget she used to be the lead actress in a comedy. If you are in the UK and have the BBC iPlayer, you should definitely try to catch it before they remove it!
